2022 Joint Annual Meeting and COVID-19 Safety Planning

Let’s Keep Our Community Thriving

COVID-19 is still being actively passed from person-to-person. By attending an in-person event, you may be exposed to COVID during your travels or by a fellow attendee. To decrease your potential exposure or potential sickness we encourage all our attendees to: 
  • be fully vaccinated prior to attending the meeting, including the new COVID-19 Omicron Booster. 
  • wear a mask covering your nose, mouth, and chin when indoors and traveling. 
  • wash your hands for at least 20 seconds. 
  • frequently use hand sanitizer. 
  • stay home if you are feeling sick or experiencing know COVID-19 symptoms. 
  • travel with your own home test kit to be able to test in your room if you are feeling unwell. 
  • check your colleagues’ wristbands for their interaction preferences. 
If you suddenly test positive for COVI9-19 while in Vancouver or when you immediately return home, please contact ESA at meet@entsoc.org so that we can monitor potential spread throughout the event.
